    Hello,

    If you are using the HTML widget with advanced HTML you will need to make some changes first:

    UK:
    If you are using a WebStore-provided domain name like example.hostedbyamazon.co.uk, change your domain name to example.hostedbywebstore.co.uk.
    If you are using your own domain name, such as www.example.co.uk, modify your hosting companies CNAME settings so that www.example.co.uk has the CNAME of example.hostedbywebstore.co.uk .

    US:
    If you are using a WebStore-provided domain name like example.hostedbyamazon.com, change your domain name to example.hostedbywebstore.com.
    If you are using your own domain name, such as www.example.com, modify your hosting company's CNAME settings so that www.example.com has the CNAME of example.hostedbywebstore.com .

    Hope this helps,

    Jacek

  • How do I change from .hostedbyamazon.co.uk to .hostedbywebstore.co.uk? I have been to my domain settings but it is not obvious how to change it.

    How do I add javascript to a page?

    Instructions are for .com, co.uk should be similar (just change .com to .co.uk)

    You will also need to change any internal links that referenced the old (hostedbyamazon) url.

    ===================================
    (post by Nick S - 6 Months ago):

    It looks like you are currently on the webstorepowered domain. On this domain, there is actually a JavaScript approval process in place. If you opt to use the EC2 Proxy, you can upload unrestricted JavaScript without an approvals process.

    This is a simple process that only requires you to change your domain name to a different amazon sub-domain.

    To change your domain name:

    1. Click the Settings tab.
    2. Click the Control Panel link.
    The Control Panel is displayed.
    3. Click the plus sign to the left of the General Webstore settings section.
    4. Click Domain Name.
    The Configure your domain name page is displayed.
    5. Select the option Use your own domain name
    6. Enter your store name followed by hostedbywebstore.com
    For example: beetailer-test-store.hostedbywebstore.com
    7. Confirm that you own the domain.
    8. Click Submit.

    After you have done this, you should be seeing your JavaScript perform as expected when you preview the site. Switching to this domain also allows the use of Advanced HTML.

    =================================================

    This solves so many problems, I don't know why it (hostedbywebstore) is not the default domain used when first setting up a Webstore...

    Hi all,

    The answer above is correct. Thanks for help Carradine :)

    As for the answer why this is not a default domain - believe it or not, but people who are using advanced html/java scripts etc., are still a minority of webstore users :)

    Regards
    Andrew
